Pepsiman Game disclaimer appears on the packaging of the new “running action” game from software developers KID, makers of Saturn H-games such as WELCOME TO PIA CARROT. This is not a joke. The game is one gigantic Pepsi advertisement and the makers make no pretenses otherwise. In this reviewer’s experience, there have been plenty of console games centered around licenses where the developers strived to make an enjoyable gaming experience, and have fallen way short. (Countless movie licensed games come to mind). Having said this, I was quite skeptical about the quality of PEPSIMAN, but was drawn to it nonetheless because of my fascination for quirky Japanese games that will likely never see the light of day on US soil. Upon receiving a copy of this game, this reviewer was excited to give it a go and was pleasantly surprised. PEPSIMAN is very simple, with gameplay reminiscent of 8-bit and 16-bit action games, but it is a very fun game and also funny as well.
